Saturday is Daddy day. With swimming lessons cancelled, we embarked on a playground crawl. We started at Jells Park and ended at the new Waverley Park Estate playground - a definite favourite. Kids now in bed and Dad is stuffed 😴

At the risk of outing myself as being aged between 40 and 49, I've booked in for my vaccination this Saturday at Sandown Racecourse.
If you're aged 40+ or are an aged care or front line worker, I highly recommend making a booking.
The more people that are vaccinated, the more chance we have of defeating this virus and returning to a COVID normal.

Last year, in the middle of Stage 4 lockdowns, Emmanuel Kindergarten in Eastgate Street were given orders to vacate by their landlord after more than half a century of serving the local community
As Mayor at the time, I was happy to assist the local community to find a new home for their treasured local kinder. Last night, that new kinder opened at Sacred Heart under the management of the Glen Eira Kindergarten Association
Congratulations to the local community members who refused to let go of something so special. If you have a young child and are looking for a childcare centre, check them out!

Terrific event hosted by the Monash Women’s Business Network today. We heard from Professor Elizabeth Croft on what we can do to encourage more women to seek careers in STEM and how simple steps such as changing language used can make all the difference.

As someone that works full-time and is a Councillor in his “spare time”, today is a great day. A very rare day, but a great day.
Looking forward to meeting my family 😍

** PROPOSAL FOR OUTDOOR DINING AREAS TO BECOME SMOKE FREE **
As we’ve come out of the COVID-19 lock-downs we’ve seen, now more than ever, how important outdoor dining has become. As a father of three girls, and with another child on the way, I have avoided some popular eating areas area due to the amount of passive smoke that my children have been exposed to.
The State Government introduced new laws in 2017 to curb smoking at outdoor dining venues. Council is proposing to introduce new outdoor dining permit conditions, and Local Laws, to ensure the intent of this law is upheld. It has always been Council’s strongly stated view that the use of public land for outdoor dining is for just that, outdoor dining. Anyone that has frequented Eaton Mall (as an example) since the new State laws were introduced, will be well aware that our outdoor dining areas have been instead used to serve “snacks” or “drinks”, thus allowing smoking to occur.
In December 2020, Council resolved to update our Footpath Trading and Access Policy to require that food be made available at all times on any public land made available for outdoor dining. For the avoidance of doubt, this change would have the effect of requiring all outdoor public dining areas to be smoke free.
Council’s intent is for the new changes to come in to affect on the 1st of July, 2021.
I, for one, cannot wait for this change to occur – and despite some people who will inevitably be unhappy with the change, I know that the overwhelming majority of our community will share my sentiments.
Although feedback for this change has technically closed, you are welcome to reach out to Councillors to express your views. Councillors contact details can be found by Googling “Monash Councillors”

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Well done @oakleighcarnegierslbistro on a fantastic service adhering to COVID protocols

So today April turned six. After a massive day of celebrations, I asked her to put her jammies on.

Twelve months ago today, in the midst of a COVID-19 lockdown, four Police officers lost their lives in the line of duty.
At that time, with the community unable to pay their respects in the normal fashion, the significance of the sacrifice our Police make to keep our community safe was even more pronounced.
Tonight we light up the Civic Centre to pay tribute to Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, Senior Constable Kevin King, Constable Josh Prestney and Constable Glen Humphris.
